This Poem is dedicated to all those who have fell into the trap of Loving someone only to find that it needs to be kept secret and the turmoil they have gone through trying to make sense of it. My heart has wept for friends and family who have experienced this. I truly delight in the open Loving relationship in which I am connected.
The Secret Love
Hidden away, where no one can see,
I keep my Love, only for me.
He visits when you sleep, in the Dark of night,
When all is quiet, beneath the moon light.
I call him my friend, we work side by side,
People see us together there’s nothing to hide.
Yet when we are alone and come close together,
Its here that our love shines, in an eclipsed merger.
I open up gently, to the Love that I taste,
Forbidden and tainted with secrecy and haste.
There is no going forward as this must be hidden,
Our Love for each other kept from his children.
Disapproval and fear shake the foundations of our oneness,
The essence of true Past Love opens the questions?
When, where, if ever this Love will be shared,
With everyone surrounding us that so do care.
Though they guess, understand and feel the tension,
We are still not allowed, there’s no intention.
With time and counsel, I realize my mistake,
This ain’t Love, this isn’t true, I need a re-take.
For though there is a connection that runs deep to the core,
It is not enough for you to divulge like I implored.
So I say good-bye and I begin to dis-entangle,
This Love that was leaving me in an emotional strangle.
Thank-you for showing me other dimensions of Love,
For exposing me to a hidden closeness that fit like a glove.
Without it I would not have been challenged to find,
A richer life for me, where I value my Divine.
So the journey continues and a Fair warning given,
Love is false if it’s covered over and hidden.
Give yourself the greatest gift, Walk in the Light.
Allow the Love to flow, it is worth the Fight.
